Fredericton announces plans to introduce new nuisance bylaw to deter unsafe partying


The City of Fredericton plans to introduce a new nuisance bylaw that would enact greater fines for unsafe partying. The changes follow a party held near several postsecondary institutions in the city in September 2022, during which emergency responders were assaulted and an emergency vehicle was damaged. The changes would allow officers to give higher fines to deter unsafe gatherings. “It’s really important to find ways to come at this from different perspectives,” said UNB VP academic Kathy Wilson, who stated that the university has looked at how other institutions have dealt with raucous parties.
